Why do 1,109 people live in Antarctica? Without looking up facts, I'd guess a few enjoy being different, look for adventure, walk against the wind not with it. Some if not a lot of these Antarcticans (word?) are what I'd consider "helpful" people. In my life, I've run into a few of these myself: teachers, police, politicians (don't laugh), philanthropists, and scientists. It is a hunch that a lot of the inhabitants of Antarctica are scientists, folks looking to unravel the Earth's mysteries for the purpose of helping mankind. Definitely not a whole lot of nothing.
So, I joined an XP team. Why, because I want to help players more than I do with my shoddy website. No, I didn't join because I needed a long vacation (although my switch to the XPFarmsLooseX1 coincided with my trip last week to San Francisco). No one vacations to Antarctica (no one I know at least, and no one without a death wish or some mission of bettering humanity). I was expecting to be temporarily kicked from a team that I enjoyed because of my travels, and my expectation was soon fulfilled, and I found myself teamless. For fun and thinking of the stereotype of the XP farm team, I looked up the most famous one I know of, and tapped the "Join" button. Boom, I was in. It was really that easy. Of course it was easy, some of you say to yourselves as you laugh yourselves silly at me. I wasn't really truly expecting joining to be easy. I, for one, have always had a reverence to the XP team or even solitary farm for that matter.
But the general public with all this rage at Pocket Gems over every little glitch, every dollar to spend, if the firey river of hatred could melt the continent of Antarctica, would you believe such would amount to 90% of the world's ice and 70% of the world's fresh water? If it melted, all the seas would rise around 200 feet. So, ostensibly San Francisco would be destroyed, but so would a lot of the hater's hometowns.
